Title:  An Introduction to Differential Forms

Abstract:  The theory of differential forms is a beautiful subject that has particular importance in geometry, topology and physics.  Our focus will be on how differential forms provide a better approach to multi-variable calculus.  Specifically, we will see that many ostensibly unrelated results are unified using differential forms.  Time permitted, we will introduce de Rham cohomology, a cohomology theory based on differential forms.
